I am browsing the forum on a daily basis in order to find the latest news on upcoming bikes and it takes me a while until I read through all those posts. So, in order to make our life easier I thought it might help to have all Tri-Bike 2019 news in one post.
What we know so far:
Pinarello Bolide Tri
Cameron Wurf was already riding it at Challenge Almere in the Netherlands and Pinarello just posted a picture on IG about the new Tri bike. It will have disc brakes and a storage as well as hydration compartment.
Felt will definitely update the IA range with disc brakes while rumor has it that there will be a complete design update maybe in 2020. Mirinda Carfrae will show her Kona Felt IA with disc brakes within the next days and we can already find some images for this online:
While the new colour scheme for the P5X is already in the shops we still have to wait for the launch of the new P5 which will be released in or around Kona. It will feature disc brakes, a double diamond frame as well as a new monostem cockpit similar to the TriRig one.
The new P5 as well as the S5 with disc brakes were presented in Germany during the Derby Cycling Show. But the bikes were hidden in a room were only retailers would have access and for sure there were no pictures allowed.
If you have further pictures or information please let us know since this is one of the most anticipated bikes for 2019. Those athletes who were lucky enough to get a sponsorship by Cervelo can decide in Kona weather they are going to ride the P5X or the new P5 disc as far as we heard.
Just like every year we are waiting for an update on the shiv. While there have been several comments on the new dealer catalogue which seems to offer a new Shiv with disc brakes (unfortunately without pictures) it is still questionable if the new Shiv will be released in the near future.
Canyon didnÂ´t give any information about an updated version of the Speedmax CF SLX but at least there will be an aero update for Patrick Lange which will be released on the 4th of October. There is almost no information about what it is but it was designed together with Swiss Side and also we donÂ´t know if it will be available for mortals.
The most quiet brand is probably Scott. So far there hasnÂ´t been any information or announcements about a new Scott Plasma and most likely weÂ´ll have to wait for another year or two. Please let us know if youÂ´ve heard anything from here.
Since many people are currently thinking about a new tri bike as most of the current models (except BMC, P5X) are out there for quite some years I hope it helps if we gather some information here. We all now that the bike from 2005 are still fast and that the main factor of the bike is the rider but still itÂ´ll help to know when new bikes and industry trend are coming up
